Colleen, I was just looking at the pictures again tonight because Stave put them on BP's. I have a carbon copy of your dog over here. Mine is asleep on the couch. I have been making skewers for kabobs on the grill and will try some of your coiled ends tomorrow. Thanks for the idea.

thank you all!

Alicia, the tripod is for hanging a pot, or dutch oven over a fire for outdoor cooking, or I also have people buy them to put in their gardens to hang a plant pot from!

Mark, my dog Saffy is as sweet natured as they come, hope yours is the same!

I've been selling these hooks and pokers now for a few months, and I am getting a lot of requests to make them into toilet paper holders!! I don't know what it is about them, but it seems a popular request! I just make the hook slightly longer and looser, and coil the end into a tight spiral and turning that in, rather than flatting it for the coathook end.

Lovely work, Colleen. I do a lot of hooks (leaves mainly) and never thought of using a twist top. You have perfected them, and they are very attractive hooks. Well done!

Hi again!

 

It's been some time since the last post.

 

I just couldn't get out of my mind your twisted ammonite shapes. I've been playing with some key chain ideas lately so I tried your pattern. I thought to show them since you (or technically your ammonites) were the muse  :)

 

The basic form was the plain scroll the other two are only prototypes - so please forgive the non-functional or failed stems.

Interesting detail: the small one weighs 30 g and the bigger ones 32 g each.

 

Thank you for the ideas and best wishes!
